Sorry, wrong number

Miamisburg, OH, Letter Carrier Nicholas Pierce

Letter Carrier Nicholas Pierce was delivering mail on a summer day in a Miamisburg, OH, neighborhood when he was approached by a 7-year-old child who said she was lost.

Pierce asked the little girl where she lived, and she told him an address with the street number 371.

The Postal Service employee walked her to that location, which turned out not to be her house.

Pierce spoke with her further and determined she meant 471, so he took her there, where her mother came outside and thanked him for guiding her daughter home.
